I had thought of maintaining a saltwater tank but from what I have read it sounds very difficult so I just settled on a brackish tank. Do I need any new types of filters or supplies? Any help would be GREATLY appreciated since I'm new to having brackish water. Most of the info I've found on the net has not mentioned anything about the supplies I might need.

A brackish tank is very similar to a salt tank hier alk and pH. It cycles very much the same way also. But not a bad step before going to salt.
